3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow. What an amazing beer! First, the beer greets you in the nose with a wonderful pepper aroma. Correction, slaps you in the face with a SPICY peppery aroma. And, this is coming from a slightly cloudy pale beer. The beer enters the mouth smooth, with a bit of pepper - not as much as the aroma would let on and leaves the throat with a bit of heat.
This is truley a beer for hot pepper fans. There isn’t malt or hops for these peppers to hide behind!
If you don’t like peppers or don’t think that peppers have any place in beer, there is some simple advice a sage friend of mine said: don’t buy a pepper beer and expect it to taste like something other then peppers. The peppers in this beer come through amazingly well!

A very nice pepper beer until you burp it doesn't burn. It does then! No head. Aroma is light green chili and corn chip flavor is the same.

Draft at the brewery. Bloody Mary mix added. Pours hazy orange with a fizzy white head. Tastes like spicy pepper, celery seed, pickle juice, tomato, and pale malts. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like celery salt, pickle juice, tomato, pale malts, and a peppery spice.

Draft pour at the Colorado Plus Pub. Rating from my notes. Pours a cloudy peach yellow color with a patchy oily head. Wonderful spicy pepper aroma. I honestly believe I can detect all 5 peppers here. It’s officially a 5 alarm beer, and I love it. Mild pepper up front with a slow transition to a spice finish. Very well done. I love pepper beers. I can’t help it. Nice sweeter balance to this. Loved it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pale hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has meaty peppers that seem quite heavy on the serranos and some pale malt hiding underneath the pepper aspect - nice for what its trying to do. It has a medium / light body with a bit of crispness and mild carbonation. The flavor is mainly peppers, but it is not overly aggressive or spicy, it has a lot of the pepper flesh to it. The is a bit of the pale malt going on and a veggie/corn sort of flavor, but I’m guessing that is actually an aspect of the peppers used. Don’t think I’d want to drink a bunch in one sitting, but one bottle is pretty nice if you like a bit of spicy bite in a beer from time to time.

If you ever wanted a beer that smells and tastes like a fresh jalapeño, then look no further. Billy’s Chilies managed to really hit the nail on the head with this off-beat beer. I wish it were a bit spicier, but it is otherwise everything I hoped it would be. It is a little bit of a reversal having one of these with mild food rather than a generic beer with some spicy food. It is absolutely worth trying at least once, and I will be looking to keep some in my collection, but I’m sure it is not for everyone...as evidenced by the average rating.

This is not an every day beer, gives a real chilli kick in the aroma and flavour. For small doses only
